From the Ocean to the Sky, Edmund Hillary, Signed, hardcover.

SKU: 9780340224601


Edmund Hillary's book on jet-boating up the Ganges. Signed by Sir Ed!


First UK edition/first printing, signed by author Edmund Hillary, on the author's note page. Impression visible/palpable on the reverse side. In excellent condition, some slight wear on dustjacket/yellowing - as expected with the age of the book.


Details Sir Ed's encounter with the tiger of the Sunderbans, Hindu holy men and Sikh pilgrims, with rural Bengali villagers and hysterical Calcutta crowds. At every teeming city ghat and wharf, at each remote refueling stop, the people of India - fishermen, city dignitaries, village elders, excited school-children, ancient porters, yogis- all responded with an outpouring of warmth and enthusiasm to honor the pilgrimage of the Western travelers.



As above, but a clear 10/10 considering the signature!
